Our new "cheap" kitchen
schuttelMarch 27, 2013
When we bought our house, it had a kitchen that was all white (even the basins) green wooden handels. This is somewhat unusual for South Africa. I nailed 6mm plywood on the melamine doors for frames and painted (colour washed) the doors. I have used old meranti planks that were used for outside walls of a complex for the worktop. I then added some off cut granite pieces in the wood. I also replaced all the tiles and added some chandeliers. Some of the awkward shelves was also changed into vegetable storage and wine racks.

It looks really nice! The new countertops look wonderful with your wooden beams and door.
